Porsche cars confirmed for Gran Turismo Sport

Previously, the car manufacturer had signed an exclusive deal with game developers Electronic Arts (EA) that meant the cars would only appear in EA released titles such as 'Need For Speed' and 'Real Racing'.

Last year, it was announced that after 16 years, EA and Porsche were putting an end to the exclusivity of their deal, meaning other game developers could strike up their own deals to feature the popular cars in their games.

Now, it has been revealed that Porsche will in fact be including their cars in the upcoming Sony PlayStation 4 racing game 'Gran Turismo Sport', confirming the news in a tweet published by the PlayStation Twitter account.

The tweet, which included four images of the cars in the game, read: "Porsche and new tracks confirmed for Gran Turismo Sport! Sign up for the U.S. beta here: http://play.st/2ooW5jS (sic)"

Although the game still has no confirmed release date, it is currently in the Beta testing stage. The game will be exclusive to PlayStation 4 users, and is reportedly being developed to feature support for virtual reality (VR) headsets.

EA confirmed in a statement published in December that whilst the exclusivity of their deal with Porsche was no longer valid, they would continue to partner with the manufacturers and the cars will still be available in their games.

The statement read: "We continue to have an excellent, long-standing relationship with Porsche. We mutually agreed earlier this year to continue our relationship under a non-exclusive licensing agreement, and we will continue to feature Porsche cars in future EA racing games."
